As the day turns to night we come together to be playful, meditative, sexy, and any other way we wish to experience our self.
On our non verbal dancefloor we set and uphold clear guidelines on how to invite someone to dance, end a dance, and how to non verbally say no to an invitation.
Ecstatic Dance is for the celebration of self expression, connection with supportive community, and being just how and who you are. Everyone is welcome.
